E-learning is growing
We live in exciting times where our daily lives are dominated by innovation. The education landscape is also gradually changing as new inventions and new ways of teaching become the norm.
It’s worth noting that innovation does not only mean technology, but it encompasses any creative, new way of doing things.
If it improves learning, processes, and systems, or solves a real problem, then it is innovation.
We want to highlight some of the ways in which creativity has been applied to solve some of these plaguing educational issues, across the African continent. They include:
- Lack of resources, more trained instructors
- Lack of proper education system
- High and unaffordable fees
- Lack of access to the learning material available online
Technology is transforming education in Africa at an unprecedented rate. With the rapid growth of mobile learning, the e-learning market is set to be worth well over US $530 million by 2018.
E-learning is not only helping students learn better, but it is also giving underprivileged learners inexpensive access to educational content.
In Kenya, adoption of e-learning is happening at an impressive rate. Schools in low-income areas are using technology to boost their learning. In Nairobi’s Kawangware area, students are using eLimu, an app for primary school learners to learn and revise for their exams.
Providing a more interactive, efficient plus a play-full environment for students to learn and grow. Nourishing the next generation of African leaders.
